Cyprus landscape painting 15th January 2009


Cyprus landscape 15 January 2009
Oil on canvas
7 x 9.5 ins (18 x 24 cms)

A brighter day and the winter sun shining brightly on the sea took my attention. From my hill near the village of Pareklishia I looked across at the hill overlooking Amathounda (Ancient Amathus), with the Akrotiri peninsula in the background.

Hi Bee,
This painting is lovely ! I like the way the sea peeks through the tree trunks at the waters edge. I'm glad you're back to painting and having a good time [and getting a suntan, too]!

Thank you Kate. I wish I could take credit for the tree trunks. You made me realise that what I had intended to look like rocks on the hill, needed to be darker, otherwise they would read the same as the sea. I almost allowed the 'tree trunks' to stay as it probably made a more interesting painting ;) Then thought I ought at least try to complete the scene as it was intended, so I've tinkered with the 'rocks' LOL
